My 2003 SVT Focus is now in transmission shop having the complete clutch job (Luk flywheel, rear main seal etc.) however they showed me the oil pan gasket is leaking below the mounting plate for the rear main seal. The shop say it will take them 14 MORE hours to replace= $1,200 labor!!! They also said it can only be done with transaxle out of car. I looked at non-Ford repair manual and it does not say remove the transaxle, only to remove cat converter, drain oil and drop the oil pan (which is a very large aluminum casting below the iron engine block). Please can someone with experience tell me if it is as simple as my manual says AND can be done by me without removing the transaxle? HELP soon as I have to tell them what to do Monday morning. If anyone can send me the piece of Ford manual on replacing the oil pan gasket that would also help.
